There is a letter to the editor in this issue in which the writer suggests that people who are out of work and are given weeks and weeks of unemployment aid should be put to work by the government in lieu of making careers out of collecting jobless aid. Congress is debating giving some jobless people extended unemployment aid.

We feel for some of the unemployed who due to circumstances beyond their control are out of work and unable to find a job. In many instances, they can’t qualify for positions because of a lack of the necessary skills. While a public works job may be “below them” in their minds, it’s a job and it would qualify them for the same pay as they are receiving in jobless benefits.
